West River Conveyors & Machinery Company in Oakwood, Virginia, recently added both conveyor belt and structure to its conveyor equipment packages. Previously, West River only supplied terminal group packages that included drives, take-up units, tail sections, discharge / transfer stations and belt starters.

As the need has risen for customers to have a one-stop-shop, West River has worked diligently over the past year to partner with quality, competitively priced vendors to offer both belting and structure to their product packages.

VP international sales Pete Savage said: "We’ve been looking to sell belt and structure as part of our packages for a while but we’ve never been competitive.

"With excellent pricing on our conveyor packages, we are able to be competitive when adding conveyor belt and structure into the deal. Structure and belt are necessary pieces for customers needing turnkey solutions and now, we can provide those items."

The MSHA-approved conveyor belt offered to customers comes in a variety of widths, is fire-resistant and complies with the most common national and international standards. The belt is available in any ply, PIW or design necessary for your operation. The structure offered is available in both floor and roof-mount, a variety of sizes and angles, and meets all Conveyor Equipment Manufacturers Association (CEMA) standards for load ratings, safety and durability.

Co-Owner and VP sales for West River Joe Street said: "This is a major step in the right direction for us.

"We’ve been expanding over the past ten years but being able to offer customers a one-stop deal is going to help with further expansion and give us the ability to compete with the larger companies."

Attractive pricing on total package options, customer service and quality workmanship has catapulted West River Conveyors to the forefront of the underground conveyor business.
